We work to connect and power an inclusive, digital economy that benefits everyone, everywhere by making transactions safe, simple, smart and accessible.

Our decency quotient, or DQ, drives our culture and everything we do inside and outside of our company. We cultivate a culture of inclusion for all employees that respects their individual strengths, views, and experiences. We believe that our differences enable us to be a better team – one that makes better decisions, drives innovation and delivers better business results.

Title and Summary

Manager, Software Engineering

This position supports the Authorization Decisioning product within Mastercard’s Decision Management program. Decision Management enables faster, smarter decisioning at global scale by structuring and applying complex business logic across the payment journey and beyond. Authorization Decisioning orchestrates high throughput, low latency, and data-intensive processing across Decision Management’s intelligent system on behalf of a suite of market-facing products.
This position is responsible for working on behalf of those market-facing products to directly and indirectly lead teams of program managers, product managers, and software engineers to deliver enhancements across the Decision Management platform. More so than most technical management roles, this position requires a patient empathy to relate to and understand the needs of our partners and an organizational savvy to find creative and co-beneficial ways forward when the ability to execute requires coordination beyond your direct team.
Is the model for the Mastercard Way of creating value, moving fast, and growing together through decency, inclusion, and a generosity of spirit by…
• Provide dedicated and hands-on people leadership over a scrum team through guided personal development plans, performance reviews, and technical guidance.
• Form deep and meaningful relationships with our partners in product to better understand the market and to create a sense of united urgency to deliver.
• Intrinsically understanding the priorities of the business—working collaboratively to create strategic roadmaps and their delivery while balancing against short term regulatory and operational needs—and then speaking with an authoritative voice to align your teams and partners on what’s most important—even when it’s not what they want.
All About You
• Proficient with different application patterns to implement different types of business processes (e.g., APIs, event-driven-services, batch-services, web-applications, big data).
• Hands-on experience with data-intensive programming in Java, REST API, Microservices, Kafka, Axon, MQ, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Jenkins, and Spring.
• Seasoned in leading teams to deliver large and complex releases on-time and budget.
• Well-versed in SDLC practices (Scrum/Kanban/SAFe) and the nuances/applicability of their use in a variety of delivery situations.
• An expert in using basic engineering principles for building and running mission critical software capabilities (security, customer experience, testing, operability, simplification, service-oriented architecture).
• Required undergraduate degree in Computer Science or in a STEM-intensive degree program with related experience in software engineering.
• Preferred graduate degree in Computer Science or Business with related experience in fintech and payments.
